What time will the meal be delivered?
You should expect to receive your delivery between 11:00-1:00.  This window may get smaller as the weeks go on.

What if my child has an allergy?  Can an allergy-free meal be delivered?
If your child has an allergy please contact your school nurse to confirm that the school has written documentation from a doctor stating the allergy.  The Dining Services department will then work with the school nurse and the Transportation department to ensure that an allergy- free meal is delivered.
